I'm new here
Hi everyone, I'm new here. My gp prescribed me some new antidepressants today (I can't remember if she said what they are called or not). My fiancé's going to the doctors to pick up my prescription for me in the morning as I'm starting the voluntary work placement which mine n my fiancé's job centre adviser has put us on (I'm doing my placement at the local salvation army charity shop and my fiancé is doing his at the local rspca charity shop). I start mine tomorrow morning (my fiancé started his laat week) at 10am and I don't finish until 4pm.
My gp also advised me to phone oe call into my local branch of MIND and make myself a self referal appointment with a counsellor for counselling, but the only problem is that I don't finish until the 25th of next month and myself and my fiancé have to find time to get over to our local hospital for some tests (personal reasons) as well as finding time to go n visit my fiancé's brother and his partner and her son.
I just don't know what to do first once my voluntary placement has finished. ..do I make appointment for counselling first or do me n my fella sort out our hospital appointment or our long overdue visit to see my fella's brother and his partner and her son?
I've also got an appointment for my asthma review next month as well.
